Starting a C Corporation can seem like a daunting task. However, there are a few things to keep in mind to make for a smooth process.
First, you need to give your business a unique name and appoint officers, including a board of directors and a CEO. Then you’ll need to draft the articles of incorporation with your secretary of state and write the company bylaws.
Next, you’ll need to issue stock and apply for a business license at the municipal, county and state levels. Lastly, file Form SS-4
to secure your employer identification number (EID) from the Internal Revenue Service
(IRS), along with any other ID numbers based on your state’s requirements.
